Fine Arts

Fine Arts Mission

The arts are a central feature of virtually all societies throughout history. There are multiple ways of understanding and interpreting the human condition and the study and practice of the Fine Arts provide an important means for such understanding. Through artistic practice, students gain an awareness of the richness of human culture and ways in which a society’s values, aspirations, and ideals are communicated. Through the practice of the arts, students will acquire skills, values, behaviors, and knowledge that are essential for success in any field within a diverse and always changing society. Students in the Fine Arts aspire to use their knowledge, skills, talents and abilities to improve the human condition.
